7:09 am
house in november. as for mitt romney he's trying to convince skeptics about his taxes. mitt romney got a brief reprieve from persistent questions about his taxes thanks to his picking paul ryan as his running mate. thursday it nipped at him once more. prompting the former governor to respond to holding tax returns because he didn't pay tax returns. >> i did go back and look. i never paid less than 13%. so pay taxes every single year. >> reporter: it's the first substantial distraction from the campaign away from ryan's much discussed national debut on the stage, an announcement saturday a homecoming. this encounter with a protester come monday. the challenge thursday for president obama to bring the final medicare, a central attack point of ryan's controversial
7:10 am
budget plan. >> you think raiding medicare to pay for obama care is an achievement? neither do i. >> reporter: paul's appointment as romney's number two has been met with tears from the right. cheers and jeers from the left, a hittable target. >> so far the challenge has been that romney's campaign wants to embrace ryan for his boldness and conservatives like him but they don't seem to actually embrace the details of the policies he's advocating. >> reporter: republicans have adopted ryan's road map for america's future, including transforming medicare by incorporating a voucher system. some analysts say winning that battle above even the economy could determine whether romney/ryan is ultimately a success story. >> they are going to have to explain to the american people why their approach and their plan is better than what the president has offered. and if they can successfully articulate that, they have a much better shot of winning the white house. >> reporter: now, nbc news has learned the obama campaign has
7:11 am
made an offer in writing to the romney campaign that if governor romney releases five years of his tax returns the obama campaign promises not to criticize him anymore if he doesn't release any more than that. savannah. >> thank you. david gregory is moderator of "meet the press." good morning. let's pick up where ron left off. thisler from the campaign manager to the campaign manager for romney. give us five years of the tax return and we won't ask for anymore. a gimmick or an opportunity for obama to make this more of the issue again. >> both. total gamesmanship, an opportunity to keep this alive. they want nothing more than to shine a big bright spotlight to shine on mitt romney's personal finances. to fight about who will protect the milling class, let's underline how wealthy mitt romney is. if you pay 13% in income tax, is that the total rate he paid across the board, federal,
7:12 am
state, local, let's investigate that. right now the obama team wants to drive up his negatives, that being a principle goal of their in the tax story. >> up until this point mitt romney saying his tax rate is 13%, the story had been about paul ryan. i made this observation earlier in the week. this was the rarity where the tig delighted conservatives and liberals. is paul ryan going to be a game changer. >> i think he will because o the sheer enthusiasm on both sides, positive and negative, he will generate. i thinke surprised people. polling out of his home state cutting well into president obama's lead. we'll see how much he can deliver in wisconsin and the industrial midwest. i think we need more time to get a sense of how much of an impact he will v it won't take long to revert back to the top of the ticket. >> as much as the democrats relish the opportunity to attack on medicare, it's the romney campaign it's clearly decided a
7:13 am
good offense is a good defense, going after the president for medicare. are you surprised we haven't seen more in terms of ads out of the obama campaign this week? >> it's tough to run a campaign where you're dealing with changing a big entitlement program. president obama knew that with privating social security. medicare here, too. the view is if you're explaining, you're losing. the romney camp thinks if you're explaining you have a chance to reassure people and try not to lose. it will get more intense. >> romney decided to go on attack on an issue where he tends to do okay in polls, that is likability. saying he made it about hate and disgraced the presidency. is the romney campaign onto something here? >> they have an opening. the bane ad with the guy who lost his wife and sort of implies romney was behind that, wasn't head at the time but before that. they had an opportunity to go after the president on that.
7:14 am
this is huge. likability is the issue. if there's a way for the romney campaign to make this about the economy, about the debt, chip into the lead the president has in terms of how they feel about him, i think that's a winning strategy. >> david gregory, we'll see you this weekend on "meet the press." 7:14. who are is willie. >> a verdict is expected this morning in a case that rocked russia and drawn criticism in some of the biggest names in music. three members of a female punk band accused of carry out a protest. michelle kosinski has the story from london. >> reporter: hi, willie. the verdict will come any minute as the crowd builds outside the courthouse. these three young women, two of them mothers of small children, have sat in jail for six months. what they did was stage a 30 second punk rock protest inside the cathedral. that should have led them to a $30 fine, but they face years in prison.
7:15 am
the so-called crime in progress. the punk rock girl band, whose name we can't say on morning television, was quickly shooed off the alter by security and angry nuns to jail. two weeks the russian presidential election in march. we admit our ethical wrongdoings. but an ethical wrongdoing is not prosecuted criminally. that's nadia with a 4-year-old daughter. maria, also a mom. the problem seems to be -- all their songs seem to hit the theme they can't stand president vladimir putin. bright dresses a sharp contrast to the gray russian winter. in london putin said he didn't think their verdict should be severe. the ladies face a maximum of seven years in prison. prosecutors have asked for
7:16 am
three. enraging sections of russian society, many have donned their own, along with many others have been arrested in protest. this silent one immediately turns rough. 18-year-old anna ends up shoved into a police van. this woman is splashed with holy water, pushed to the ground, pulled off her mask and pulled her hair. divisive, hate. >> a sense of whether freedom of expression is actually allowed in russia or not. >> rallying behind the women, sting, peter gabriel, paul mccortney, red hot chili peppers and madonna, who in moscow this month pulled off her shirt to reveal the bands name. >> i'm against censorship. i hope they do not have to serve seven years in jail. that would be a tragedy. >> band members who remain free
7:17 am
vow to become bolder. the fate of three young women help define a state of civil rights in russia. their own attorneys are not optimistic because so few cases in russia end in acquittals. what stands out in the video is how brave they have been and defiant and how dangerous descent can be in russia even in peaceful protests. willie. >> michelle, we'll see what happens. thank you. it is 7:17. here is savannah. >> now to a small michigan town where somebody purchased a winning ticket in the third largest powerball ever. when will the mystery man or woman come forward to claim that $37 million prize? kevin tibbles is in la peer. good morning to you. >> reporter: here in lapeer, it is still a much talked about mystery. not so much a who done it, but
7:18 am
who done won it. as little lapeer, michigan, celebrates its annual carnival, the buzz remains, who is the latest powerball millionaire. in the local sunco where the winning ticket was purchased is popular for something other than gasoline. >> it's all we talk about in time, trying to find out who it is, if we know them. >> reporter: in the town of 5,000, so far mum is the word as to who is $37 million richer. >> do you know who the winner is? >> no, i don't. >> a lot of money. >> one person in town? >> very lucky. >> reporter: we all know the odds by now, i was 264 times more likely to win an olympic medal and nearly 2,000 times more likely to date a supermodel in my lifetime than i was winning wednesday's jackpot, but
7:19 am
a fellow can dream. all of a sudden phones are ringingocity hook as startled residents are being bombarded by callers all asking one question. >> the people who live here getting calls from all over the world, are you the winner? are you the winner? >> are you the winner? >> no. >> michigan lottery law says the winner must come forward, although they do have a year to do so. so eventually folks will know who the lucky lapeerian really is. >> you look like a winner to me? >> well, i feel like i am but that's it. >> reporter: in the meantime the mayor is loving his town's newfound notoriety. >> we've had a saying for many, many years, one of our local car dealers, this is lovely la peer, i guess we could change it to lucky la peer. >> reporter: it would be lucky as they take in $2 million in tax revenues should the winner be a resident. everything helps in a lucky
7:20 am
economy. >> i'm so jealous. >> reporter: one thing everyone can agree on, whoever bought the ticket is one lucky person. now, this is the third largest powerball jackpot. should he or she take a lump sum, they will walk away with $240 million. you just heard i didn't win. had i won, i would take the money, because otherwise, matt, al, and willie would be sticking me with the bill and lunch for the rest of my days. >> exactly. i don't think you'd be here right now. right, kev? >> i would not be here. still ahead rihanna's emotional interview with oprah, how she was concerned with chris brown after he soughted her.

on rossen reports, a day at the beach. the sunscreen that's supposed to protect you. what's the truth behind those super high spf numbers. today national investigative correspondent jeff rossen is here with more. good morning. >> good morning. you just told me you're going to the beach this weekend. a lot of us. we'll be going to the store for sunscreen, it's confusing, 80, 100. i saw spf 110 the other day. the higher you go in many cases the more money they charge you. doctors say the sunscreen companies are misleading you, and they know it. ♪ i want to soak up the sun >> it's another hot one at the beach. the sun bathers are out, so are the kids. everywhere you turn, someone slathering on the sunscreen. >> we believe the higher the number, the more protection we'll get. >> you want to buy the best for your kids. >> the highest number. >> the sweat proof, the
7:43 am
waterproof. >> reporter: hang on. some doctors call those ultrahigh spf numbers a misleading marketing ploy. buy spf 100 instead of spf 50, you might think you're getting double the protection but you're actually only getting 1% more, which doctors say doesn't make a real difference and the fda agrees. there's no evidence anything over spf 50 prekts you any better. yet the spf 70s, 80s, 100, even 110 often cost you more at the store. >> i tell my patients spf over 50 is useless. save your money and stick with the 30 to 50. >> yet the sunscreen companies continue making it and selling it. >> it provides the highest average spf. >> reporter: some of the products even marketed for kids. isn't that deceptive. >> i think as a consumer you make the choice based on what you feel you need. >> we went straight to the industry group representing the sunscreen companies.
7:44 am
>> have you seen evidence anything over spf 50 plus gives you better protection. >> because we are not part of that dialogue, that's not an area i have gotten into. >> you're the industry. you're sitting here representing the industry. >> that's true. >> have you seen any science that shows anything over spf 50 better protects you? >> that scientific door i have not opened because there is a debate going on. >> reporter: some companies like neutrogena and banana boat say the spfs do work better and can offer better protection. setting a limit on the label, they say, would only hurt consumers. but the fda isn't convinced, now proposing new rules that would ban the sky high labels. the limit would be spf 50+. that's it. the fda isn't done yet. those big promises of waterproof and ultrasweat proof, experts say they are misleading, too, making you think you don't have to reapply. >> waterproof and sweat proof are not true. if you go in the water and swim
7:45 am
or ocean or pool and come out, you've lost that sunscreen. >> and that will burn you. using labels, spfs. what's a beach lover to do? >> you're going to buy the highest number, the one that says waterproof, sweat proof, the very best. they are playing on your emotions as a mom. >> not every company is coming out against the spf limit. sunscreen giant coppertone tells us they will go with whatever the fda wants. as for those buzzwords, waterproof and sweat proof, they have been banned. the companies have to change their labels by the end of the year. unfortunately that's in time for next summer not this summer. >> jeff, that's really frustrating for those of us who spent vast portions of our summer with our kids. >> the higher numbers, you have this false sense of security you're covered all day and you don't have to reapply.
7:46 am
the truth of the matter is you have to reapply every two hours, even more often if you're going into the pool or water. >> jeff rossen, good information. coming up next, artist or criminal. the artist whose classic forgeries are so good they ended up in museums and he made millions. that's right after this. comes with some risk, north america's natural gas producers are committed to safely and responsibly providing generations of cleaner-burning energy for our country, drilling thousands of feet below fresh water sources within self-contained well systems. and, using state-of-the-art monitoring technologies, rigorous practices help ensure our operations are safe and clean for our communities and the environment. we're america's natural gas.
